I am really enjoying my studies at HOTEL SCHOOL, as I have previous working experience in the hospitality industry. I have chosen this college because of the possibility to proceed studies in English and at the end of the studies to be awarded the UK "Higher National Diploma in Hospitality Management", as well as the 4th level Latvian professional qualification “Hotel Services Organizer".
In the course of studies, the practical component is of great importance, and I am really satisfied with professional attitude from the lecturers and college administration. Study environment is positive and multi-cultural, as we have a lot of foreign students. College is organising frequent field trips to different hotels, so the students can see how theoretical knowledge is translated into the real working environment. HOTEL SCHOOL also has organised a trip to the university in Switzerland, where students can continue their education by admitting to higher level education programs immediately in the 2nd or even 3rd year of studies.
I really see how HOTEL SCHOOL is helping me to develop my personality and professionalism that are needed in the hospitality sector. I want to say THANK YOU for their efforts. Knowledge is confidence – and we are getting more confident every day here in the HOTEL SCHOOL!

In November 2018, I was lucky to join the international business cruise "Intercultural Communication in Businesses". Not only did I have a unique opportunity to gain experience and knowledge from leading universities professors, and to present our HOTEL SCHOOL among other students and teachers from different countries, but also to see the cities of Italy, Spain and France. The information we learned at the lectures will be an invaluable basis for my future career. How to work with different cultures and nationalities? Why should we be loyal to each other? And why we're all different? Answers to all these questions, we received during the lecture, where we not only listened to the lecturer, but also had a variety of team work, games and various tasks. At the end of the cruise ship trip we all became a team and began to understand each other better! We also received certificates of lectures and made a lot of new friends and professional connections!

I'm very grateful to all HOTEL SCHOOL lecturers for their help, advice and professional knowledge that have helped me to develop all the necessary skills and competences to succeed in the hospitality industry. Currently I hold a position of an F&B Outlets Supervisor at 5* hotel Vinpearl Phu Quoc, Vietnam. The job is very challenging and at times stressful and it's a very responsible position. Now I'm getting to realize how professional training and knowledge that I gained during my studies in the college helped me to be much better prepared for the real life challenges!
Once again I'm thanking all my lecturers in HOTEL SCHOOL and wishing you a great success with new students!

When I started my studies in HOTEL SCHOOL, the biggest challenge for me, no doubt, has become English language. During the 2 years of studying, I have improved my language skills and have overcome the language barrier, so I'm very pleased for myself, as well as I have earned internationally recognized British diploma. I would like thank college's professional and renowned tutors, who gave me not only theoretical knowledge, but also practical advices. Im hoping continue my studies in the field of hospitality. At the moment I'm working as a front office employee in one of the leading hotel in Riga, employee. This is my first step in building successful career in hotel management and it all depends on me now, how hard I'm willing to work to reach the top!

I had my summer internship in Berlin, Germany, for two months. I was working as a breakfast waitress in 4 star hotel. My daily duties mainly included, but was not limited to - serving guests, setting up and tearing down breakfast buffet as well as laying tables for the next day. Challenge for me definitely was due to my shifts getting up really early, everyday at 4 o` clock in the morning as I was not used to such regime, however after already first week it worked out fine. As Berlin is vibrant city with rich history and specific charm I definitely recommend for everyone to use the opportunity of having an internship abroad even if you are not really good at German language do not afraid to use such chance because it will be an experience to remember and also a plus for your CV in further careers :)
